               Surcease

Surcease for me a rocking chair,
With naked feet high in the air.
Belching echoes' of moans and groans,
Resting this restless bag of bones.

Where little good of me remains,
With time worn hands and liver stains.
I boast another feature share,
The shakes became a cresting heir.

Some tokens heal, my cat surcease,
I knead her as I think on peace.
She answers me with purrs so loud,
They dull the closing aging shroud.

I quell within my rocking chair,
Sooth the flares of the pains I bear,
Reduce the groans and undertones
And try to rest this bag of bones.

With rest my eyes begin to close,
I drift away and start to doze.
And when I dose, I am passť,
Of age, of pain and resume.

Wow, Seymour, I'd rank this as one of your best!

Especially liked:

"Some tokens heal, my cat surcease,
I knead her as I think on peace.
She answers me with purrs so loud,
They dull the closing aging shroud."

Awesome stanza!

With rest my eyes begin to close,
I drift away and start to doze.
And when I dose, I am passť,
Of age, of pain and resume.

In sleep we can leave it all behind and soar can't we    This is a grand work of art Sy, I loved it!

A fine commentary on the peaceful repose of an obviously full and busied soul.

Seymour~
A bag of bones
is not what I see
within the art
of your poetry.

It is with honor
I would say
to get the chance
to read your resume.

YOU ROCK ... POETIC ONE

Sy,
I've never seen a bag of bone
So full of youthful undertones
I never saw a aged soul
Physique built of a thirty year old
I never saw a purring cat
To keep up with the likes of that
Great poem,
Love ya
Liz

This is excellent Sy. Cats are wonderful for releasing pent up emotions arent they?
